With the patchwork of federal, state and local leave laws to administer on top of new paid family and medical leave programs, many employers were already reeling when 2020 began. When the pandemic hit and quarantine orders followed, employers faced new challenges with teleworking and managing employees without available childcare. Congress responded with emergency legislation mandating paid leave for COVID-19 related illness and childcare purposes. Washington Governor Inslee also issued proclamations requiring accommodations for high risk employees. While employees explore a smorgasbord of leave and accommodation possibilities for managing their lives during the pandemic, this has left many managers and HR professionals feeling overwhelmed.
Using real life examples, this presentation will supply you with a checklist and other tools so you can navigate gracefully through leave and accommodation obligations to manage your workforce during these challenging times.
